Duffy's Tavern 118 Eps




(118 Episodes)
"Duffy's Tavern" was/is a Wartime situation comedy which ran for a decade on several different radio networks: CBS, 1941–1942; NBC-Blue Network, 1942–1944; NBC, 1944–1951. The final "Duffy's Tavern" episode airdate was December 28, 1951.

Ed Gardner starred as Archie, manager of the drinking establishment owned by Duffy, "...where the elite meet to eat." Ed Gardner, writer/actor who co-created the series, had performed the character of Archie and spoken of "Duffy's Tavern," as early as November 9, 1939, during his guest appearance on NBC's "Good News of 1940."

* THEME SONG:
In the familiar opening, "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling," performed either solo on an old-sounding piano or by a larger orchestra, was interrupted by the ring of a telephone and Gardner's New York-ish accent, as he answered: "Hello, Duffy's Tavern, where the elite meet to eat. Archie the manager speakin'. Duffy ain't here—oh, hello, Duffy."

** I did have 132 Duffy's Tavern episodes .. or, so I thought. After working my way through the "Duffy's Tavern" errors pages (that would be, count em, four pages of errors) at the Old Time Radio Researchers Group website, I discovered I had several (14) doubles, as a result of misnamed/misdated episodes.

Thank you, OTRRG for your dedication to OTR and for giving we other OTR fans (for this very reason, if none other) your address to turn to.
